Are you looking for ways to reduce customer frustration? Watch this webinar to learn more.

2017 Forrester research revealed that 73% of online consumers cite valuing their time as the most important thing a company can do to provide excellent service. And according to ICMI’s Brad Cleveland, prompt service is one of the top ten customer expectations. The problem? Outdated, disjointed processes and systems still prevent most contact centers from delivering a truly seamless experience, and the result is often low efficiency and high frustration.

Are you looking for ways to reduce customer frustration? Join us for this complimentary webinar as we share five practical steps you can take to simplify the customer experience and drive ROI for the business.

Attend this webinar to learn:

  • How to train and empower agents to ease the customer experience
  • Why omnichannel service impacts the whole business, not just the contact center
  • How to enable better collaboration between the contact center and other departments
  • How the right technology can enable a better omnichannel experience for both agents and customers

Join us for this interactive hour, complete with live audience Q&A.
